CELUSA/SAIBT ensures that students who elect to study in Adelaide take full advantage of the opportunities the city has to offer. Our focus is to provide all students assistance with their transition to Adelaide, and provide greater integration with local and international students.
Those who join our Student Leadership Program benefit from our training modules by gaining the skills and confidence to facilitate student focus groups and forums. You also become a great point of reference for all international students. Our forums provide the opportunity for students to speak about their experiences and make suggestions on how to improve the transition into Adelaide for new students.
Many student friendships are formed through this program and students gain satisfaction and recognition from providing a service to CELUSA/SAIBT. A Student Leadership Program certificate is issued to participants who complete the full program.
Job Search/Job Interview Skills Workshops are scheduled frequently to assist those seeking part-time employment. On completion of a workshop, the Student Experience Coordinator can assist students to complete their resume and provide guidance regarding job sources. In addition to our in-house volunteering opportunities, students can venture out into the broader community to enhance their real Adelaide experience by contributing to the community and a range of non-profit organisations through regularly scheduled activities or events volunteering in the breaks.
Additional benefits of volunteering include greater exposure to Australian workplace culture, local experiences and a chance to contribute, and further discover and develop new interests and skills.
Students can keep up to date with events and activities by joining the CELUSA/SAIBT Facebook site, viewing regular email information, checking the notice boards and meeting with the Student Experience Coordinator on campus. The Student Experience Coordinator can assist students with adapting to the local way of life by supporting students to find out local information such as places of worship or how to apply for a driver's licence.
CELUSA/SAIBT recognises that a happy student is more likely to be a successful student and we encourage you to seek counselling advice if you are feeling worried, confused or just simply need someone to talk to.
Kate Blencowe is a Senior Counsellor for SAIBT & CELUSA and is available for all types of counselling, support, therapy, referral or help for students.
Kate provides confidential counselling for any personal issues, no matter how sensitive, and also helps students with learning and study concerns.
